Et tu, Brute?



Here comes another broken plaster face I did a drawing of.

The accusing expression on it somehow reminded me of the classical phrase “Et tu, Brute?” (You too, Brutus?), which Julius Caesar is supposed to have uttered whilst receiving the final stab by his friend and adopted son Brutus.

Although there´s is no evidence that he actually said that (and how could there be since voice recording hasn´t been invented yet around 44 BC?), Shakespeare used them in his play “Julius Caesar” and thus these words have become common knowledge and signify the utmost betrayal.

Luckily I haven´t been stabbed to death, but from experience I kind of know anyway how Julius Caesar must have felt… 😦

  1. I can totally see how you made that connection. It’s a good drawing, made more powerful by the word association. Hope you’re having a good weekend Sarah. Cheers, Su.

      1. All right, now I get the joke! 😉 Thank you for explaining and I´m so embarrased I didn´t know! :0
        Good things need time to get finished, so the longer it takes, the better it gets 😉 Well, that´s what I´m always telling myself at least 😉
        Wish you a bonne weekend aussi, mon amie 🙂 xoxo ❤

    1. It definitely is a good line to have a joke about! 😉 I, too, use it more or less frequently and lament about things then 😉 Look forward to hear your story about it!
      And thank you sooooo much for your compliments!!! I´m also very glad we connected here (I agree, it´s been Chris´ “fault” 😉 )!!! I´ll be looking forward to more exchanges in the future!!! 😀
